"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Small Town Defenders

Yeah, wouldn't it be nice....

Cross posted from BorderPundit:

Wouldn't it be great if every city and town in the nation enacted laws like Mayor Barletta's? Check out www.smalltowndefenders.com and submit the law to your own City Council for implementation.

Welcome to Small Town Defenders!

I'm Lou Barletta, the proud Mayor of the City of Hazleton, Pennsylvania.

Recently, our City has greatly suffered from a series of serious crimes and economic hardship including the murder of a city resident, the discharge of firearms at a local playground, high profile drug busts, and severe strains on our classrooms and health care system. All of these previously mentioned crimes involved illegal aliens and their large migration to our City have resulted in educational and economic strains that threaten our quality of life.

I could not sit back any longer and allow this to happen, I needed to act! That's why I drafted the Illegal Immigration Relief Act, a measure that is designed to send a message. My message: To the residents of Hazleton, I say thank you for your support. To our recently arrived legal immigrants, I say welcome to our City. I wish you all the best and hope the United States and Hazleton can be a place where your dreams come true, just as my great grandfather's did when he legally immigrated here. I am proud to represent you as your Mayor.

There are thousands of small towns and cities across America like Hazleton, Pennsylvania. I hope the steps we're taking in Hazleton to defend ourselves will inspire others to become small town defenders.

Thank you for visiting Small Town Defenders! Be sure to visit our online petition page and let us know how you feel.
